The sector is facing significant challenges and competition between rivals in the aerospace industry can be intense, resulting in the need to challenge - or defend - granted patents through oppositions and appeals.

Several of the attorneys in our aerospace group are among Europe's leading individuals at representing clients at these hearings. We are used to responding quickly and imaginatively to arguments raised by the other side on the day, and, when defending a patent, to formulating claim amendments dynamically and on the fly, to make a successful outcome more likely.

The group work across the full range of subject-matter demanded by our aerospace clients, including composite manufacturing and assembly techniques, aircraft design, jet engine architecture and construction, and avionics systems, where we have considerable experience in the areas of flight deck instrumentation and control technology, air traffic awareness, navigation and routing systems, and radio and data communications.
